London Met Vice Chancellor John Raftery with the students’ union officer team

LONDON Metropolitan University has opened a new students’ union at its Holloway campus.

Students and staff came together to celebrate the opening in the new Harglenis Building, in Holloway Road.

The revamped space, which used to house an inquiries office, represents a £1.2million investment by the university.

The union was previously split between two offices so this is the first time it has had its own stand-alone building.

Tunde Toki, students’ union president, said: “We are so pleased with our new home. The new space has greatly strengthened the feeling of community among students and staff.

“It has been a pleasure to work with the university on such an impactful project that is enhancing the student experience and allowing us to work more effectively together.”

J Block, where the students’ union was previously housed, will be transformed into a teaching and learning centre.

Vice Chancellor Professor John Raftery said: “This investment represents a key part of our One Campus, One Community masterplan, which is designed to enhance the student experience and improve student outcomes.

“We are proud of the work of our students’ union in representing and providing great services for our students and we want to ensure they have the best possible environment to collaborate and enjoy student life here at London Met.”
